What's Jack up to? Besides stealing slippers and having me walk barefoot on the cold floor, Jack is quiet this morning. Thanks, Jack.

Yesterday was my day to host my weekly knitting group. We unofficailly go as: The Knit Witches and if you come at the wrong time you can sub another word entirely for Witches. (Wink, wink, ladies!)

As always, it was a fun unwind in the middle of the week and nice to catch up on the suburban news. The coffee and the talk were flowing freely. For now The Witches will remain anonymous in order to protect the not so innocent.

Progress was going well on all the ladies projects although, I'd like a little more forward movement on my scarf. Hosting knitting made it tough to stick to WW, but it's once a week and I had the ladies take home all the leftovers. Thank goodness, because if that leftover Chocolate Almond Slice was in my house this morning it was sooo be eaten. Check out this spread. Chocolate almond slice is on the bottom of the photo. Yes, on my plate.

I hope you get to take a little time to sit and get with your crew this week.

I saw a comment about your blog on Chick Lit Writers. Amazing what writers can have in common. Both my critique partner and I are on WW. She writes a DIY series for Berkley, and I'm working on a PI series. Oh, and I LOVE to knit. So how do WW and knitting compliment one another? Well, you can't eat when both hands are busy. I wish I could find a local knitting group. What a blast that would be. Maybe I'll start my own. Are you a beginning knitter, advanced...?

hmm, knit witch, casting a spell with each stitch while slipping something devilish in is a great way to treat yourself and give one oxygen to go to WW and to perfect your writing witch-craft!
looked closely for the broom? nowhere in site?

Hi Jamie,

Cool, I hope the comment was good. I think that must have been the nice Lise. Thanks so much for visiting.

I've been on and off WW forever but I'm trying to be serious this time and finally get it done. Lots of my writer friends are on WW and we chat together now. One of my crit partners got us together.
Yes, you can't knit and eat but I do try!

As for knitting I'd say I'm in the middle catagory. Not great, but I have knit a few socks in my day.
I actully learned from books and videos. The group was started by my friend PVE. We live close and we are joined three other frends from the neighborhood. We've all grown close through knitting. We're all in differnt stages, but getting better every week.

I say start a group of your own with a friend or two who want to learn also. If you like take a weekend beginner class at a local knit shop to get you going.

Please stop back and let me know how it goes.
